The animals we saw.....wow.. Starting from the entrance their lobby blends in with the nature so does their gift shop.. Each rent has a bath tub, a...

Our first stay in a tented camp in the Mara and a truly magical experience. The location is perfect on the Mara and Talek rivers. The individual tents were breathtaking with a roll top bath, outside shower, plunge pool and completely private with hippos grazing outside your tent in the night. The hot water bottle tucked in the bed at...

Unbeatable for an intensive safari experience. Our guide Jonathan was better than we could have hoped for in his knowledge and experience, finding us the best sights around the reserve. The whole team at the camp were friendly, professional and looked after us incredibly well. The accommodation is luxurious, well appointed and we couldn't ask for more. Thanks to all...

Went back for the 7th or 9th time... Sorry lost count. Went back with family from England and enjoyed the experience all over again. Thank you Paul, Simon, Andrew and crew for a memorable visit.

Where does one begin to describe the experience of a lifetime? For anyone hesitating - Don't! It was absolutely wonderful. The access track to the camp is a bit hairy - bumps, craters, rivers, and ravines but in the hands of an expert Land Rover driver and guide, and we trusted him absolutely, there was no problem. This camp is...

I was not expecting the level of luxury that I discovered when I was escorted to my tent by the masai escort. Each tent had it's own boma (ensclosure) with an indoor clawfoot tub, and an outdoor shower (for those brave enough). Your tent is secluded from the other tents, but is also accessible to the wildlife, so don't be...

My daughter and I stayed at the Ngenche camp in the Maasai Mara. It has only 10 very spacious tents. I particularly wanted to stay in a small camp and my daughter arranged everything through Natalie.
